Ronald DavisRonald Davis

Ronald Davis, 82, of Fayetteville, Georgia, died at Piedmont Newnan Hospital on August 31, 2021, surrounded by his wife, sons, and daughter.

Ronald was born in Fayetteville, Georgia on May 24, 1939 to George and Carrie Davis. Ronald graduated from Fayette County High School in 1957. He started working in clothing retail at the age of 12.

He later founded Smith and Davis Clothing in 1965. For 56 years the business he built has taken care of so many people in the community.

Ronald loved spending time with his family. He eagerly looked after the family land that he worked with his father and that he now shared with his children and grandchildren. He loved driving his tractor with his great-grandchildren.

He was a member of Flat Creek Baptist Church for nearly 40 years. Throughout his life, Ronald was an example to others with his hard work and servant heart.

After the death of his parents and his sister Regina Godby, Ronald leaves his 63-year-old wife Noreene Davis to cherish and honor his memory; Son and daughter-in-law, George and Marie Davis, Jr., and their children, Joanna (Daniel) Jury, Kayla (Tyler) Powell and Emily (Craig) Carroll; his son and daughter-in-law Tony and Johnna Davis and their children Jacob (Andrea) Davis, Mollie Davis and Mary Grace Davis; his daughter and son-in-law Beth and Todd Ray and their children Lee (Susanne) Hyde, Jeremy (Tifanni) Hyde and Tanner Ray; and ten great-grandchildren.

There will be a private family funeral. A celebration of life service for family and friends will be announced at a later date. Instead of flowers, the family has lovingly asked for donations in memory of Ronald Davis to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We welcome you to convey your condolences, thoughts and memories to the family on our tribute wall.
